If you have spent anytime walking the
mean streets of DC, you have, most likely, noticed a cupcake place…or a few. Hello Cupcake. Georgetown Cupcake. Red Velvet Cupcakery. Sprinkles. The list goes on and on. It is enough to make anyone’s head spin. Everyone seems to have chosen a side in this battle for cupcake glory. However, some are left wondering: what is the preoccupation with cupcakes?
Since we were young, cake has been a cornerstone of our upbringing. For any celebration, there was most likely a delicious cake involved. Wedding. Birthdays. You name it, there was cake. Now, a cupcake allows us to experience this same rush of sugary, joy in an easy-to-handle travel size – assuming your cupcake makes it out the door of the store (mine usually does not). Everyone wants experience childhood every
day once in a while. Count me amongst them!
